Wendy Langshaw Profile pic

I have over 20 years of experience as a Physiotherapist working in a range of areas, creating a unique skill set to help you reach your goals. I works holistically and functionally using a mind-body-movement approach and I invest time teaching you tips and tricks to continue your treatment away from the table or mat.

I am known for my unique ability to get to the bottom of persistent or long-term issues that have been resistant to other forms of treatment. I regularly sees people from all over Adelaide and the country for consultations.

Since opening Energy & Motion, I have attracted some key international Women’s Health Physiotherapists to teach at the centre and I will continue to offer excellence in postgraduate education through the clinic.

Experience

I have worked in both Adelaide and London. My unique experience has including musculoskeletal, sports and spinal physiotherapy; women’s health, hydrotherapy and respiratory physiotherapy; neurological physiotherapy and persistent pain management.

Expertise

I draw from a range of tools which include: hands-on release and mobilisations; acupuncture and dry-needling; complex lymphoedema treatment; exercise; yoga; Pilates; mindfulness and relaxation; education; and pain science to create a treatment programme that suits you.

Focus

I have a strong focus on cultivating a healthy mind and healthy body. I enjoy making a difference, and working in partnership with you, so you can rediscover vitality, ease and wellbeing.

Education

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy) with Honours 1A in 1996, and have gone on to complete extensive postgraduate training across a range of areas of Physiotherapy throughout my career.

Teaching

I have enjoyed mentoring and teaching undergraduate Physiotherapists at the University of South Australia and postgraduate Physios in Australia and the UK.  Career highlights have included: assisting world renowned Physios Diane Lee and Linda-Joy Lee teaching their 12 day Integrative System Model (ISM); and Linda-Joy Lee’s Sporting Hip course in London.

Innovation

I have developed and run programmes including Falls & Balance Rehab for the elderly; the 3 week Chronic Pain Management Programme (COPER); Bellies, backs & babies® Aquanatal Programmes; Postnatal Recovery Workshops; and Nurtured Birth™ Education workshops for Mums and couples.

Membership

I am actively involved in local and international sports, women’s health, birth, wellbeing and Physiotherapy communities. I am a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association and Australian Continence and Women’s Health group.

Highlights

Other life highlights have included travelling and living overseas. Adventures away included cycling up mountains such as Mont Ventoux, parts of the Italian Alps, Dordogne and Pyrenees and hiking through the Annapurna region of Nepal.

Birthing and raising my two gorgeous children (you can call me biased!) has been extraordinary, stretching and expanding me in so many ways. Living in the Adelaide Hills and being surrounded by amazing people, community and country has been very grounding and a great place to settle.
